With just two weeks since its release, Whooyi Music’s Gratitude Riddim has taken over the international reggae-dancehall gospel industry by surprise, as it tops the charts in both local and international Christian entertainment circles – this publication has learnt.
The Gratitude Riddim, which has been crafted with an initial plan to bring together International Christian reggae dancehall community, has featured artists like Saxess, Aika, Monicah, Sir Creedy and Crucked Colour on local scene.
While on international platform it features Sobre and DJ Sanctified from Zambia, Wadiwa Musiq and Collie Turflex from Zimbabwe, JSaviour from Kenya, as well as Da Journey and Muzikman from Jamaica.
Speaking in an interview, the Project Coordinator, Sir Creedy, hailed the riddim’s reception, saying the piece has fostered growth of their brand and created a new window of fanbase across the continent.
Creedy said; “The reception is good. It has brought about exposure and growth of fanbase of many artists in the riddim. We have all been able to reach a new audience in other countries.”
He said that currently the piece has been jumped on by various artists and it is enjoying good airplays in Africa and beyond, including USA, Malta, Netherlands, South Africa, Kenya, Malawi, Zimbambwe, Zambia, Jamaica, UK, Costa Rica, among others.
Creedy wasn’t short of words, “Meanwhile Some artists like Sobre in Zambia have already shot their own videos and I also have shot a lyric video of my own.”
Creedy added, “It feels good; dreams are coming true as this means I have taken a step further in bringing international artists together, since the project was meant to strengthen and bring together artists from across the world.”
Going forward, Sir Creedy pledged for more collaborative efforts and ground breaking projects having called on fellow artists to “be authentic and represent Christ well.”
Meanwhile, Aika’s No Limit (Gratitude Riddim) which she features Sir Creedy is toping the Chart on Zambuye.com
The project is being sponsored by Ben Beats and Sir Creedy’s Whooyi Music.
